Polnozrnati kosmiči

Polnozrnate kosmiče
pojedle so nam miši,
imamo vsaj tri priče,
da te so res pri hiši.
Smo šli v preiskavo,
da našli bi storilca,
preden odnesejo še kavo
ali pa skledo motovilca.
Po prstih smo hodili
vse do tistega predala,
previdno nos molili,
kjer le škatla je ležala.
A poleg našli smo še nekaj,
kar je izdalo lačna usta,
žvečilni gumi tistega,
ki rad kosmiče hrusta.

Wholegrain oats

All our wholegrain oats
were eaten by a mouse,
three at least took oaths
that mice are in this house.
We set upon a hunt,
to find the culprit’s hole,
before it takes our coffee, tea,
or a garden salad bowl.
We walked upon our toes,
right up to the drawer,
carefully stuck our nose
where the box was stored.
More betrayed the hungry mouth
that we found taking a look,
we also found the bubble gum
of the oatmeal crunching crook.
